CETA/YEDPA Education Policy. Issues and Recommendations. A NASBE Report.
Prentice, Dinah, Ed.
This report represents the work of a national task force on youth employment policy convened to identify and address the basic educational issues generated by the Youth Employment and Demonstration Projects Act (YEDPA), part of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA). It is organized around the broad problem areas of concern to the group, representatives from education associations and federal agencies. Major topics are (1) educational credit for work experience; (2) governance issues; (3) career guidance and counseling; (4) program development for special populations; (5) school facilities, personnel, and public service employment; and (6) private sector, manpower, and education agencies. Priorities are assigned to the issues raised, and then the task force's recommendations are made for the federal, state, and local levels. The recommendations could be summarized as need for collaboration at all levels between education, employment, and training agencies; program assessment and identification of exemplary programs; and technical assistance to both existing and potential programs. Information in the appendices, amounting to one-half of the report, includes a list of task force members, program fact sheets on CETA and YEDPA, and charts addressing the six major concerns which give problem statements and suggested responses at the federal, national association, state, and local agency levels.
